Curry Pie - Support Curry Cooking Day for Singaporean Indian Family

I just cannot imagine that anyone would complain about the wonderful curry smell. A Chinese immigrant in Singapore reported to the Community Mediation Centre (CMC) about their Indian neighbour curry smell (link, Yahoo News). After reviewing the case, CMC requested the Indian family to cook curry only when the Chinese immigrant family is not at home. Well, I think this complain and decision by CMC is shear nonsense! Curry is part of our culture and many people loves this dish very much. I guess it is more of an attitude problem of that Chinese immigrant family rather than curry smell problem!
Therefore, I decided to cook this Curry Chicken Pie in support of the Indian family.

Ingredients 1 - Fillings
Chicken Meat, 300 gms, cut into small pieces
Potato, 1 large, cut into small cubes (use US Russet potato which would softhen easily)
Curry powder, 2 tablespoons
Onions, 1 pc, cut into small pieces
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste

Ingredients 2 - Pie Pastry (please refer to my previous Apple Pie Recipe)

Heat up wok and put in a little oil. Saute onions until fragrant and put in the potatoes. Cook until the potato turn a little soft. Add curry powder and chicken meat. Keep on stiring the mixture. Add a little water and boil until the potato is soft.  Put in the salt and sugar.
Pour the curry chicken with potato fillings into the pie pastry. Cover up the top part with the rest of the pastry. Bake in oven at 200 Dec C for 20 minutes.

I wonder if this Chinese immigrant family can 'tahan' (stand) the smells of my Durian Pie? ha ha ha!

Who would ever hate curry? It's one of the world most delicious food. And the CMC to approve the immigrant's request? Nonsense!

Btw, your curry chicken pie looks tasty. Er, I won't attempt to bake this yet (fail to max!) but next time if you made this again, I'll surely appear at your front door, muahahah!

oh, that is just nonsense!! so i guess the indian can also complain the smell of the immigrant chinese cooking.. see what CMC will do?? :D

curry pie is yummy!

Suhaina said...

Its so kind of u to show that you respect the Indian culture. Truly appreciate it.
When we live in a multiracial society we must respect and accept other peoples culture and not go around and complain..
Pie looks so yummy..I made curry puff with the same filling..

Hayley said...

I love curry pie! I want a small slice only, can? :P

Umihoney said...

It is sad that CMC had made that decision in a multiracial society like Spore as if curry is foreign in Spore to appease the immigrant who should be the one to assimilate into the local culture of place.

I also support curry la so send over one dozen of this pie Pete hehe

Yeah read about it too and agree with you how unreasonable the China mali family can be. Didnt know cooking curry got strong smell one hmmmm. Think CMC didnt do a good job. You mean if the Chinese family stay in 365 days the poor Indian family are deprived of curry for a year? Then may I ask will the neighbours cannot eat durian loh?
